President of Atlanta United Darren Eales joined Dukes & Bell to talk about the team’s current winning streak and the emergence of Pity Martinez.

Darren talked about Pity’s performance last week.

“We’ve had two good wins this win.” Eales said “The game against Toronto he had a magical free kick, so you just kind of felt it coming and then in the game against Orlando he scored the Gamewinner.”

Eales talked about the tough stretch on the road the team is currently in.

“They haven’t done us any favors with the schedule.” Eales said “It’s three back to back tough road trips, but that’s the nature of the MLS so we’re going to go there and try to get the win.”

When asked about the style Vancouver might play with tomorrow night.

“The way they play is a very low block.” Eales said “It might not be a bad thing for us with a short turnaround for us, so we have to take what they give us and be very patient.”
